Moneglia resort town,
part of the Italian Riviera and about an hour's drive or train journey
(pron. Mon-ay-lia) is a small, affluent and very Italian beach resort with an attractive
palm lined road and excellent, moderately priced restaurants and bars.
Some beaches are sandy, some pebbly and much of the space is taken
by pay-parasols, but there's always space somewhere for a beach towel
and a hot body.
Moneglia's seafront is protected by a breakwater (not visible in the photo) which makes it a shallow and safe place for kids to play in, though as the summer heats up the limited flow of water can lead to a build up of algae which at the least degrades water visibility and at worst can lead to health issues.
